Captain Co F Reg 33 Ill Infantry, Invalid

His parents were Ralph Winship and Lucetta Cooley.

His brothers were James M. (1825), Frank B. (1828), and Pearl Darius (1841).

Mary A. (1831) was the wife of James and appears on the census of 1850 with the whole family. She was not a sibling. Her maiden name was 'Read'.

Henry married Clara Cox and had four sons: Matt, Sid, Clarence and Lee. He and his family relocated from Illinois to Chaudron, Dawes County, Nebraska in 1885, where he was a marshall. In 1902, they relocated to Sunrise in what was then Laramie County, Wyoming.

Henry and son Clarence worked for the Chicago & North Western Line Ry. at The Colorado Fuel and Iron Company near Guernsey. Henry was in charge of scales, weighing ore that left the Sunrise mine, and Clarence started as an ore car repairman, then was promoted to shop foreman.

In 1907, Henry's wife, Clara, passed away in a Denver hospital and was buried in Guernsey. Son Philip, a brakeman, didn't move to Wyoming until after 1930. Henry died a year later in 1931, and was buried next to Clara at Guernsey Cemetery.
